Current "New & Noteworthy" game "Amazing Cannonball Duck" FREE FOR TODAY!

Hi Everyone

TODAY the AppStore featured game, "Amazing Cannonball Duck", will be FREE!

This is my first game and I've decided to try some unorthodox promoting. My game was chosen by Apple to be featured in their "Hot New Games" list under "New & Noteworthy" this week, which means I'm getting a lot of views.
I also signed up for OpenFeint's FGOTD and FAAP, which means they'll promote my game while it's free for a day.
So I figured why not merge the ideas and have it free for a day while Apple is "promoting" it!

It's not free man. And it's not in the new and noteworthy list here in Australia anyway.

It is free??? It is also not in the list in US.

Regardless, the screenshots look great and the description of it is pretty neat too. So, I am supporting you, dev, by buying it right now.

Apple: Iphone 4S - os 8.2/ Ipod touch 4G - os 6.1/ Ipad 2 - os 5.0.1
Android: LG G2 - os 4.2.2 / Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G - os 4.4.2

Don't scare me like that! It is in the US list! look, I've attached a screenshot. it's in "Hot New Games".

And iTunes Connect reports it as free but the AppStore just hasn't updated it yet, So it'll be free today ...eventually.

Game Impressions

Almost unplayable jerky on iPhone 3G. 5fps or so. Anyway, I've got >500 ft by doing nothing but holding a tap with two fingers, maybe it would stay like this for an eternity (I deliberately stopped that after a minute). Doesn't connect to OpenFeint, showing up as "unregistered user" although I am registered since months.
